Review:Settling (Solid 2) by Shelley Workinger

Goodreads Summary
At the beginning of the summer, Clio Kaid was one of a hundred teens brought to a secret Army installation. But it was no ordinary camp and they weren’t ordinary kids…

Picking up where “Solid” left off, Clio and her friends realize that they aren’t ready to go home; they’re determined to stay on campus and continue their journey of self- discovery. But someone doesn’t feel the same way and will do anything to drive them away – even kill. 

Friendships will be tested, abilities will evolve, and more secrets will come out as the teens race to stop the killer before he sets his sights on one of them…

My Summary
We're back with Clio and her friends from the first book Solid ( hope you picked it up).  Setting up campus to turn into school for all the C9X students to finish their high school.  Clio is helping Ford (filling in for Clark) set up curriculum, Jack is interning with security, Garret is recruiting coaches, Miranda is Events coordinator, Alexis is working with publicity and Bliss is still discovering what she'll be interning as.

Happy and starting their internships attacks start happening.  Is it Jack who seems not to have an ability? The 2 new kids who decided to join recently?  Will the attacks cause campus to close?

Clio fights to figure out what's happening as she's discovering she has more than one ability.  She's not just a "Stealth" anymore.

How Distracted Did I Get?
Honestly I finished the book in less than 24 hours.  Ms. Workinger has woven a story that is impossible to put down between the teenage angst and mystery it drew me in again! 

Clio again is such a believable heroine, she makes mistakes like any other person.  Strong intelligent and dealing with new discoveries around her and new abilities she is a great leading character.  

Supporting cast was amazing.  Leaves you guessing who could be attacking people on campus.  Garrett really popped this time with a little more "scene" time in the book he will make you laugh along with Rae a new student.  The other customers in the cell phone store kept looking at me wondering why I was laughing at my Kindle! 

Settling is a wonderful follow up to Solid and a definite must read. 

Settling got 5 Baskets!
